Silver Sugar Basket with Ruby Glass Liner
This beautifully crafted and decorated basket, the work of master craftsmen Joseph & Joseph Angell, features four motifs of the Green Man, with scroll and acanthus decoration. There are very clear hallmarks on two of the Green Man motifs and more on the handle.
The ruby glass liner is not original but fits perfectly and enhances the beauty of the piece.
